About Our Keynote & Guest Speaker

Pamay Bassey is Chief Learning and Diversity Officer at Kraft Heinz, where she drives a culture of continuous learning, bold creativity, and intellectual curiosity, leads global learning and development, and amplifies the work that every Kraft Heinz employee does to create and nurture a diverse and inclusive workplace.

Pamay is a true believer that learning can be a superpower that transforms people, families, communities, and organizations. This belief is demonstrated through passion projects that focus on the ways people believe, worship, lead, and learn – and is highlighted in keynote speeches that she delivers across the globe.

Her 365 Days of Learning project – where she made a promise to learn and share something new every day for a year – has been the foundation of a learning transformation at Kraft Heinz, and inspired her book, Let’s Learn Our Way Through It, Shall We? — created to encourage others to commit to their own personal and professional learning journeys.

Kelly Palmer, an esteemed thought leader on learning, business and career development, challenges leaders to let go of outdated models for upskilling and re-skilling the workforce. By developing strategies that address the reality of automation, digitization and acceleration in this new world of work, Kelly helps organizations tap into the expertise of their current workforce and make learning a true competitive advantage.

She was the Chief Learning Officer at Linkedln, vice president of learning at Yahoo! and held executive positions in learning, M&A, and product development at Sun Microsystems. She speaks regularly at companies and business conferences around the world, and has been featured in the Harvard Business Review, Financial Times, Fast Company, Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc., Chief Learning Officer (CLO), and on Bloomberg radio.
